July 16-20 was a great week to be a kid at our church. For pre-readers and primary grades, our Vacation Bible School brought learning and fun every morning. The group kept growing from one day to the next. It was hosted at the home of the Wilsons and led in conjunction with Child Evangelism Fellowship. This Sunday, July 22, there will be a presentation from VBS students as our children’s message during morning worship. After church we will conclude the week of VBS with a special ice cream party.
Not to be outdone, a group of teenagers from our youth group headed down with our Youth Director Braden Britton to the CHIC Rally at the campus of the University of Tennessee. CHIC occurs every three years. This special event gathers top-line Christian speakers and musicians to encourage new commitments and growth in discipleship among teenagers . Here are testimonies from two of them:
“I was trying to figure out what God wants from me and I think I realized that He just wants me.”
“These last few days have been the happiest of my life … because I’m letting God in.”
We are thrilled that God continues to move in our emerging generations, and are thankful that God continues to use to bring the gospel to all ages.
